Combine business with chemistry to create dynamic career opportunities

What happens when you merge chemistry with business and marketing savvy? Opportunity. Too often there is a disconnect between science and management. You can be the invaluable link that makes it all work by mastering the languages of both commerce and chemistry.

The Professional Science Master’s Degree in Applied and Industrial Chemistry is an “MBA for scientists” like you who know they have more than scientific acumen to bring to the table. Your course of study will allow you to polish the crucial skills needed to lead an industrial firm or government agency through the complex business cycles of science.
